Still works but ashame not update
By , for WP 4.2.1

My sight was getting attacked in the severest way around 2 weeks ago from locations literally all of the world. If it were not for this plugin I would not have known about it and they would probably not have stopped if it weren't also for the lockouts.
I also ended up IP Blocking whole ranges of IP addresses through the hosting control panel.
It really is a shame that this has stopped being supported, even if it was only to bring it up to current version format. I hope it is before it breaks or someone else brings out another program like it. There appears to be buggerall at the moment.

Thank you

By , for WP 4.1.1

Okay, it´s not updated since 3 years, but this plugin is easy to use. It still works and does a great job. It proteced my side 3 times in 4 weeks from attacks of China, Russia and Brazil. Thx a lot.

I use it on all my sites

The only way this could be better is, if this plugin hooks into a centralized service on the internet that takes note of the blocked IP addresses and attempts to either notify compromised computer owners, or keep a blacklist of the most commonly blocked IP addresses. But even as-is, this is one of the most useful security plugins out there. And it's free!

Unbelievably Good

This plugin works like a charm. It caught 97 attempted logins this morning alone.

Installed by Default

I install this plugin by default on all my sites. Works like a charm!

However, we all should remain aware of the potential for hacks described in at least one thorough 1-star review by Chltx. Check it out and be aware.

I'm so Happy I installed this Plugin!
